Here’s some good news for the style gurus out there: Minimalism is no longer the foundation of a stylish haircut! While the crewcut is on its way out, over-the-top ‘dos are stealing the limelight.
Hegemonic masculinity is being dealt a long overdue death blow with the modern advent of ostentatiously expressive haircuts for men like you and me. We’re talking pompadours, afros, dreadlocks, reverse mohawks and anything else that defies existing fashion molds.
The 21st century has unprecedented access to information on the past, so this is the only time in human history where all the style trends are alive at once. This grants savvy gents like us the opportunity to shape-shift from one suave identity to the next. The key to this transformation is all in the hair.
Although a few lucky guys wake up looking godly while au naturel, you are probably not one of them. Don’t sweat it; neither am I. The point is that you are going to need some sort of daily hair-care regimen, and this means investing in products such as gel or mousse. If you don’t supply the necessary additives, how will you ever achieve coiffed contemporary greatness like the slick stylish haircuts shown here?
